Our tour guide was Drew and from pick up to drop of it was an amazing adventure. He was very informative about the Grand Canyon but he let us decide how the day went. He was very prepared for the 3 of us. The trail we picked was a definite challenge for us. When we were returning to the top he made sure we paced ourselves taking breathing breaks. His knowledge of the different trails and the terrain was top notch. He told us what was ahead and let us decide how far to hike down into the canyon. The views were breath taking. When we at our lowest point he pointed out how far we had actually hiked/descended. I cannot say enough how great it was. When we make it back, he is our first choice for traveling into the canyon again.

Our parents planned a trip for our family to the Grand Canyon and this tour was part of our trip! We had an awesome time learning about the surroundings on our drive from our great guide Marsha. She was super knowledgable and very friendly! The views from horseshoe bend and antelope canyon were incredible, definitely glad we saw those in addition to the Grand Canyon. We wouldn't have found them on our own so thankful we had the tour. Lunch was also really tasty and Marsha had plenty of snacks for us while we were on our drive!

I had the pleasure of dealing with both Drew's. There was a minor miscommunication with the booking. Drew with the reservations exceeded our expectations correcting it and sending us on our way to Antelope canyon and Horseshoe Bend. Drew, the tour guide was punctual, keeping us on a schedule to meet all of the sites that we wanted. He was extremely knowledgeable about the places we went and all of Arizona's sites to see. The packed lunches too were far from a skimpy turkey sandwich. There was more than enough food for everyone, very filling. Antelope canyon was truly a must see in your lifetime. All ages can go to both of these, just know your limits. (With myself being afraid of heights it was a little tricky, but you can look ahead and not down and do just fine.) I feel like I can't say enough good things about the tour itself, the bus was spacious for all 7 of us.
The only thing I wish we could have changed was the amount of time. There are a few people who love taking pictures that feel they could've benefitted from staying even a half hour longer. I would 10000% recommend this tour because of the natural beauty and the people we got the pleasure of interacting with.

WOW! What a great experience with Grand Canyon Adventures from start to end. Booking was a breeze, communication exceptional, and our guide Drew, well he was informative and really made the experience interactive for our family.

Drew arrived promptly at our hotel to start our trek, ~90 minutes to South Rim. Drew filled those miles with a wealth of information on the land, terrain, wildlife, etc. holding our boy's attention. At the canyon, Drew brought the canyon to life with his sighting scope to observe things within/across not visible to the naked eye. Drew also took us to unique points to conduct our viewing. Not only exceptional viewing but most of time we felt as we had the Grand Canyon all to ourselves.

My title says it all, while the Grand Canyon is spectacular, Drew made it super fun and educational for a 7yo & 10yo boy, so much so, they thought it beat Disney World hands down.

Drew, the owner, was also a pleasure. He followed-up to insure our tour met our expectations.

We will be back and we will use Grand Canyon Adventures again... count on that!

We actually met our adult children, along with their spouse/boyfriend, and brought our 80+ year old parents. It was a family reunion of sorts and we had a great time. Marsha was our guide for the day and she was very knowledgeable and friendly. She described everything on the 2 hour drive and answered many questions for us. The walk out to Horseshoe Bend was good exercise and our 80+ year old parents were able to make it. Lunch was more than a fast food sandwich. It was a good meal. The tours on this vacation made our trip even more memorable. Antelope Canyon is beautiful and the family loved it. Great job to Grand Canyon Adventures. Drew and Dane were also helpful pre-vacation in helping me regardless of my many questions and calls. Terrific vacation...you have to see the Grand Canyon with your own eyes to appreciate it!
